The past few months we have witnessed a lot of tragedy in life. Personal tragedies, tragedies in those we know and love, and national tragedies like the Newtown, Connecticut shooting. Amidst all of this death and darkness and utter despair, I am so thankful for the hope we have in Christ.
Let us reflect on that today--the hope that we have, all because two thousand years ago, God sent His Son to earth to be our Savior. May you rest in this assurance of hope today, as we celebrate Christmas!
2 Corinthians 4: 16-18 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
